Phl-Lax bussiness A321. Is that even good?
Nope. Just a recliner with a very small pitch and no KSML.

Damn, It still might be worth it with a kid. Had a real bad experience in coach last time. Are the untied737-900 better?

UA from EWR is lie-flat in J if you're on a 757.

They just rarely fly 757s from EWR-LAX.

Trying to find a creative way to fly home TLV-ORD this upcoming Sunday. I need to be home by Monday 4pm..

Looking to use UA miles in Y of J, but hopefully Y. Maximum of 5 stops. I am looking to go via random airports in Europe so I can add to my list.

Best creative itinerary wins. As of now I have TLV-IST-BRU-ORD.. Let the fun start.

And here you go TLV-MUC-WAW-YYZ-ORD

You can also do TLV-ATH-MUC-WAW-YYZ-NYC-ORD.

You asked for it - you deserve it.

I just booked tlv-phl with an hour and a half stopover in Frankfurt. 1) I booked it with United miles 80000 business was that a good deal and the best way to book it?(2)is an hour and a half enough time to catch my connection?(3) I'm flying with an infant and United wanted $400 for an infant in a lap. That didn't make sense so I didn't book for the infant. How can I add him now without paying a ridiculous amount? I tried calling Lufthansa and they said I would have to call United as they actually don't charge anything for an infant and to add an infant with a ticket that wasn't booked through them they would have to charge but then they're system would reject the ticket anyway. Sounds weird but that's what they said. Any answers to the questions would be appreciated thanks

For the infant, the price makes sense. W/ UA, it's 10% of the fare. CMIIW

For number 2 yes that is enough time. And to book business one way I think that would be your best option (UA)
